Product Description
The Oxford Dictionary of Maori Words in New Zealand English is a lexical monograph and the perfect addition to any library, school or student needs. New Zealand possesses a relatively young and certainly vibrant variety of English. The influence of Te Reo Maori and the presence of Maori words make a significant contribution to that lexical vitality. It is estimated six words out of every thousand in written and spoken New Zealand English are of Maori origin. These words include the names of flora and fauna, aspects of material and social culture, and new creations, as well as place and personal names.This handy dictionary brings together many hundreds of the Maori words that have entered the language and presents a comprehensive picture of the history and current usage of New Zealand English.
